Subject: Come for the Zucco.
George Zucco is deliriously over the top in this, so it's worth it to watch his performance. The pace, however, plods at times.

Atmospheric swamps are the setting for this tale of scientific madness. A bit slow moving at times, but there are definite compensations. George Zucco goes nicely over the top as a whacko scientist bent on revenge. However, the main attraction is Glenn Strange as a simpleton gardener turned hairy werebeast. As usual he's a hoot and a half. The versatile Sarah Padden has a minor role as a pipe smoking backwoods granny. Typical of PRC, the sets and other production values are first class by B-feature standards. The print is in okay shape. If mad science is your thing, check this one out.

Subject: The usual suspects
Many actors I learned to know and to appreciate through this archive. George Zucco is one of them. He is a great "mad scientist" in this movie and a wonderful actor in the other films I´ve watched already. Now I learn about Glenn Strange. He is an abslolutely loveable simple minded giant, who couldn´t do harm to a flea but . . . ! One feels really sad about his fate. Poor fellow! Another name I want to mention: Henry Hall. Not that his performance was in any way impressive. He has only one sentence as a nameless country doctor. But I get used to recognizing familiar faces and immediately said: "I know this guy!" Well, at least two sheriffs in films available here: "Voodoo Man" and "The Flying Serpent" and one doctor in "The Ape Man". Seems to have been a busy man!

Subject: OHHH Yeah !!
This is a mad scientist classic.

If you like horror movies you'll love
this one. From the opening sequence to
the mists rising from the swamp.

To quote another hero of mad science,
"There are ways." The bigger mpeg that
was de-interlaced is a great copy.
